Folks, I was unable to fact check this to my satisfaction and I suspect unofficially declared wars may be included. But what I do know, is that in my 70 years, it seems true.
I suspect one reason today that we (i.e. The USA) are always in a war is because we have eliminated the draft. Today, only warriors and those with limited options fight in our wars and not the children of the majority of our decision makers.

MOVIE OF THE WEEK
Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery
Actually, this is a play that I saw yesterday at Meadow Brook Theater in Rochester, Michigan, USA. I’ve seen many movies and TV shows involving the character Sherlock Holmes, but a play is another way of seeing the great detective. This play is a comedy, but stays reasonably true to the story given it is a comedy.
